NAME

       storescu - DICOM storage (C-STORE) SCU

SYNOPSIS

       storescu [options] peer port dcmfile-in...

DESCRIPTION

       The  storescu  application  implements  a Service Class User (SCU) for the Storage Service
       Class. For each DICOM file on the command line it sends a C-STORE  message  to  a  Storage
       Service  Class  Provider  (SCP)  and  waits for a response. The application can be used to
       transmit DICOM images and other DICOM composite objects.

PARAMETERS

       peer        hostname of DICOM peer

       port        tcp/ip port number of peer

       dcmfile-in  DICOM file or directory to be transmitted

NOTES

   Scanning Directories
       Adding directories as a parameter to the command line only makes sense if  option  --scan-
       directories  is  also  given.  If the files in the provided directories should be selected
       according to a specific name pattern (e.g. using wildcard matching), option --scan-pattern
       has  to  be  used. Please note that this file pattern only applies to the files within the
       scanned directories, and, if any other patterns are specified on the command line  outside
       the  --scan-pattern  option (e.g. in order to select further files), these do not apply to
       the specified directories.

       The default behavior of  storescu  is  to  propose  two  presentation  contexts  for  each
       supported  SOP  class  (abstract  syntax) - one with the preferred transfer syntax and one
       with all other uncompressed transfer syntaxes. The default preferred  transfer  syntax  is
       explicit  VR with byte ordering corresponding to the local byte ordering of the machine on
       which storescu is running. This behavior can be changed with the --propose, --combine  and
       --required options, see above. Depending on these options, the following transfer syntaxes
       are supported:

       Additional Storage SOP Classes and Transfer  Syntaxes  can  be  used  with  the  so-called
       'association negotiation profiles' (see below).

       The  storescu application does not support extended negotiation by default. However, using
       an appropriate association negotiation  profile  (see  below)  the  optional  support  for
       extended negotiation can be added to particular SOP classes.

   Association Negotiation Profiles and Configuration Files
       storescu  supports  a  flexible  mechanism  for  specifying  the DICOM network association
       negotiation behavior, based on so-called 'association negotiation profiles' which  may  be
       read  from  a  configuration file. The format and semantics of this configuration file are
       documented in asconfig.txt.

LOGGING

       The level of logging output of the various command line tools and underlying libraries can
       be specified by the user. By default, only errors and warnings are written to the standard
       error stream. Using option --verbose also informational messages like  processing  details
       are  reported.  Option  --debug  can be used to get more details on the internal activity,
       e.g. for debugging purposes. Other logging levels can  be  selected  using  option  --log-
       level.  In  --quiet mode only fatal errors are reported. In such very severe error events,
       the application will usually terminate. For more details on the different logging  levels,
       see documentation of module 'oflog'.

       In  case  the logging output should be written to file (optionally with logfile rotation),
       to syslog (Unix) or the  event  log  (Windows)  option  --log-config  can  be  used.  This
       configuration  file also allows for directing only certain messages to a particular output
       stream and for filtering certain messages based on the module or  application  where  they
       are generated. An example configuration file is provided in <etcdir>/logger.cfg.

COMMAND LINE

       All  command line tools use the following notation for parameters: square brackets enclose
       optional values (0-1), three trailing dots  indicate  that  multiple  values  are  allowed
       (1-n), a combination of both means 0 to n values.

       Command  line  options  are  distinguished  from  parameters by a leading '+' or '-' sign,
       respectively. Usually, order and position of command line options are arbitrary (i.e. they
       can  appear anywhere). However, if options are mutually exclusive the rightmost appearance
       is used. This behavior conforms to the standard evaluation rules of common Unix shells.

       In addition, one or more command files can be specified using an '@' sign as a  prefix  to
       the  filename  (e.g.  @command.txt). Such a command argument is replaced by the content of
       the corresponding text file (multiple whitespaces are treated as a single separator unless
       they appear between two quotation marks) prior to any further evaluation. Please note that
       a command file cannot contain another command file. This  simple  but  effective  approach
       allows  one  to summarize common combinations of options/parameters and avoids longish and
       confusing command lines (an example is provided in file <datadir>/dumppat.txt).

ENVIRONMENT

       The storescu utility will attempt  to  load  DICOM  data  dictionaries  specified  in  the
       DCMDICTPATH environment variable. By default, i.e. if the DCMDICTPATH environment variable
       is not set, the file <datadir>/dicom.dic will be loaded unless  the  dictionary  is  built
       into the application (default for Windows).

       The  default  behavior  should  be preferred and the DCMDICTPATH environment variable only
       used when alternative data dictionaries are required. The DCMDICTPATH environment variable
       has  the  same  format  as  the  Unix  shell PATH variable in that a colon (':') separates
       entries. On Windows systems, a semicolon (';') is used as a separator. The data dictionary
       code  will attempt to load each file specified in the DCMDICTPATH environment variable. It
       is an error if no data dictionary can be loaded.
